    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at ABM Industries.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with hiring manager (EVP level). He had my resume, as provided by the headhunter he was working with. Had 30 minute interview...first 10 minutes were "getting to know you" personal stuff. Next 20 minutes started with "Did you go to college right from High School?", "When was that?", and proceeded to go thru every job I ever had in my life with the years I was there. If he wanted to ask me how old I was, he should have just done it. Oh yeh, that would be illegal. We NEVER talked about the job itself, and in fact the job description he provided was the wrong one, by his own admission. Needless to say, they didn't pursue my candidacy.

    Interview Details

    Interview and hiring process was typical. Nothing out of the ordinary. Asked for examples from previous work experience and financial experience. Was concerned about customer service and your report with clients, coworkers and management. Were you a team player, etc.

    Human Resource Clerk/Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ABM Industries in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very disorganized. Unprofessional Organization. Human Resources does not give a squat about their applicants. BEWARE PPL

    This is for when I was applying for the job as an HR Clerk/ Receptionist. But I think it speaks for the rest of the dept in HR.
    Heres my experience about the HR Clerk position*

    Got a call for HR clerk on 10/8/2014 (WEDS) from a HR rep from ABM in montebello, ca area code. She told me that someone will get in contact with me shortly. 10/10/2014 (FRI) arrives and still no answers or contact. I decided to call this lady...she didnt leave a name in the first place (partially my fault)...... i know..... but I thought i was gonna get a call from a ABM recruiter soon.......BUT they left me high and dry. This lady told me the interview was going be tuesday 10/14/2014 and no one ever followed up on that. I did not know what time the interview was..... where the location of the interview..... and who would be interviewing me.... i was sort of left in the dark. So I decided to do my own research.......keep reading

    The day before the interview, i was scrambling to get some information on the whereabouts for the interview. I called the HR dept after getting doing some research online... and every person I talk to from HR was either incompetent or completely rude. Was I wrong trying to find out where and what time my interview was going to take place???

    The HR dept was horrible in trying to direct me to the right place. They finally directed to me to the HR recruiters in LA. I believe her name was Julie and another guy name was William. I left Julie a voicemail and low and behold.... straight to voicemail ! I personally took a day off to try and go to this interview and I felt like I just lost money #1 and #2 I wasted alot of time and energy by trying to make this interview happen. I started calling hr from 9:30 am - 5:00pm and I couldnt get one single answers of what time and where was my interview. Aint that something???!!!!???

    The HR receptionist told me that if they dont get in touch with you... you can try and call at 8 am. Are u kidding me? how professional is that?? Call in the DAY OF THE INTERVIEW??? People need to prepare and get ready not be on...STANDBY. I have given up the fact that I want to work for this company.

    If they cant coordinate a interview with such a simple process... Im wondering how good is this company in the long run. I decided even if they call me, I will decline any future employment with ABM.

    ---Anyways, I hope you guys read my reviews. This is for my experience only. Everyone's different. There's a reason why ABM has low ratings b/c they are what they present themselves. Think about all these review guys before you quit your current job. Fact or fiction, these reviews speak for themselves. I wouldnt gamble my current job for this company. NO WAY. NO HELL.---

    Bilingual Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ABM Industries in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    There wasn't a phone interview. The Regional Director of HR called me and asked me to come in. It was a panel interview. They were very unfriendly and it was a cold environment. The office facility is nice. They never followed up with me to let me know I was not selected. I left with a horrible impression. This company is unorganized and unprofessional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ABM Industries in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application via the company website, and received a call the very next day for an interview. I went to the interview, and was interviewed by two different hiring managers. They asked a few questions about myself, and what I knew about the company. I was told that this would be a great fit for me as a Military Veteran, and was given words of encouragement as I left. I received a generic email from the HR department the next morning stating that I was not being offered the position. In this specific position, I believe my age was a factor in the denial.
